Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 1996 Ford F-250 that Allows Spare Tire to Be Kept


looking for hitch that allows me to continue using the spare tire carrier. what do you recommend?


Expert Reply:

The Draw Tite Hitch part # 75038 has been confirmed as a fit for your 1996 Ford F-250 and will allow you to keep your spare tire mounted underneath your truck. If you check out the picture I attached you will see it installed with a spare still mounted to the truck.

I also attached an install video for you to check out as well.

If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

If the ball mount kit does not include a ball mount with the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, check out the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.
